I share the concern that Google may one day revise their policies. I do not however share the angry, non-constructive tone of some of the replies.
@hotio and @RXWatcher should at least acknowledge that they are contributors/supporters of a ‘competing’ project (although the idea of competing in this open-source/hobby space is kind of silly). Hotio in particular is constantly harassing and sniping at the PG project without ever actually offering anything constructive. The side-swipes and implicit criticisms of PG from CB supporters is just childish – both projects offer something interesting, and users choose one or the other because it meets their needs.
Secondly, being offended by someone creating a workaround using existing tools (GDSA’s in this case) is somewhat laughable in a space where a huge amount of the content is of questionable origin to start. You are saying PGBlitz is bad, but everything else that is done is totally okay? Be serious.
Finally, the outrage at PGBlitz and insinuation that it is a “money grab” is the height of hypocrisy from a CB project that actively promotes and supports another workaround, ZJ, that costs $25/mo and uses exactly the same infrastructure (albeit via a different method/channel).
In closing, a reminder of rclone forum rules:
